Construction Litigation and Risk Management

Palumbo Lawyers’ construction litigation and risk management practice provides responsive, inventive, cutting-edge and cost-efficient representation for all phases of construction law – from new developments through completion. Anticipating potential claims and/or defending construction litigation, the firm represents national and international commercial and residential developers, general contractors and builders, design professionals and international government contractors. In addition, some of the world’s largest insurers routinely ask Palumbo Lawyers to defend their insureds in complex construction litigation in recognition of the firm’s excellence in construction law and risk transfer.

The firm has successfully resolved and/or tried to conclusion hundreds of multi-million dollar complex construction defect matters with notable results involving unique claims such as: micro-pile and Uretek® retrofits; subsidence, ancient geologic conditions, modified hydrology patterns; prefab structures; complex loss of use and income claims arising from fractional ownership developments; corrosive water and copper pipe degradation; compromised subterranean structures; building components’ composition and high rise, multi-use commercial and residential buildings as well as resort complexes.

In addition to construction litigation, our attorneys manage all aspects of construction risk, including: drafting subcontracts, design professional agreements and purchase and sales agreements. We manage lawsuits and non-litigated issues to quick and cost effective resolution; developing policies and procedures to prevent future claims; enhance jobsite safety and train client personnel, while consulting with human resources to develop required practices. As a full-service firm, the corporate department provides assistance to insure corporate compliance and assist in all aspects of licensing issues.
